I. Book Inn France, a Paris Inn Group hotel collection


An expert and leader in the market of independent Paris hotel operators, the Paris Inn Group oversees a network of charming hotels featuring 3- or 4-star ratings and ideally located in the heart of Paris. Building upon a solid past experience in Paris, the company has within just a few years time been able to develop broad know-how and notoriety throughout the city. This hotel consortium first got off the ground in 2000 when the Albar family, in the Paris hotel trade for four generations, teamed up with hotel transaction expert Jean-Bernard Falco. Dedicated entirely to the independent hotel segment, the Paris Inn Group is based on an original concept that associates hospitality management with marketing strategy on behalf of independent hotel operators. The added value input into the range of services proposed has been derived from knowledge sharing and resource pooling, as well as from access to an innovative set of management methods and tools. In order to generate an attractive return on investment and more effectively meet customer needs, the company in 2005 adopted a Yield-Revenue Management system, a state-of-the-art rate-setting technique that does not yet enjoy widespread use on the Paris independent hotel scene. This way, Paris Inn can demonstrate its desire to blaze the trail of innovation. The following year, the group implemented a bona fide online electronic distribution strategy and launched its Web portal, devoted to marketing and then online booking. The network has continued to grow and forge its own unique style. An array of cozy and contemporary hotels started to take shape as building renovation and restoration projects ensued, under the supervision of Cline Falco, the groups Managing Director, accompanied and coordinated by her well-renowned father, none other than group founder Daniel Albar. Through reliance on its range of expertise and notoriety in the Paris market, the Paris Inn Group has decided to expand its activities in 2010, and to propose its services to independent hotel owners in French provincial cities identified as offering the greatest strategic value, where the group could most effectively apply its renowned market talents and leading-edge technological tools. Since 2011, the name Paris Inn Group encompasses all the groups activities, broken down into 4 areas of operational expertise: - investment advisory - project development - project management - asset management

Paris Inn Group manages 27 3-star and 4-star hotels, totaling 1147 rooms and 400 employees, and uses two portals to market the hotels entrusted to it: www.HotelsGrandParis.com for Paris and www.BookInnFrance.com for the whole of France. As at 31 December 2011, the companys annual consolidated turnover reached 31.5 million.

one of strong growth, with the acquisition of 8 establishments within just a few years.

and financial functions, legal affairs, human resources, business development and the operator network.

2007

: Several initiatives to raise the standing of a select number of hotels became operational under the

guidance of Cline Falco (born Albar), in collaboration with some of Paris best hotel designers.

hotels under Paris Inn management; this agency was incorporated into the Group with subsidiary status.

2010 :

a key player on the Paris hotel scene. The group decides to extend its services and expertise throughout the country and launches its new commercial venture Book Inn France.
